Why shoot video with one camera when you can shoot with two?

The latest EMUI update for Huawei's current flagship Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro adds a new camera feature in the form of "dual view" video recording.

While it was announced at the Huawei P30 launch in Paris as a feature, it's not been actually available on the handsets to date.

That should change tomorrow for Australian Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro owners who purchased their phones outright, with the update to land on 10 May 2019 in Australia.

If you've scored the Huawei P30 Pro or Huawei P30 on a contract through Telstra, Vodafone or Optus, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer, with the update not due to arrive until 15 May 2019.

With dual-view camera mode, you'll be able to record with the primary 40MP lens as well as the secondary telephoto zoom lens module at the same time. While the primary lens is of course fixed, you'll be able to zoom from between 2x to 15x zoom while filming.

That's beyond the true optical range of either the Huawei P30 or Huawei P30 Pro, so there's likely to be a little digital work behind the scenes once you push it further out.

While the still camera performance on the Huawei P30 and especially the Huawei P30 Pro is exceptional, in our review of both phones we found video to be something of a weak point, so any software update that improves that experience has to be a plus.
